Much has been written in recent months about online campaigns to get certain journalists, movie directors, and professors fired from their jobs because of things they said or wrote. Some campaigns have been successful. Some have not.

On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we talk about how these outrage mobs affect the world of comedy — in particular, one comedy club in Long Island City, New York.

How should free speech advocates think about outrage mobs? Do they represent more speech, or a form of private censorship? Or is it more complicated?

This episode of So to Speak is presented in partnership with Comedy Cellar: Live From the Table. It features:

Nico Perrino, host, So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast

Noam Dworman, owner, The Comedy Cellar

Rebecca Trent, owner, The Creek and the Cave
